Up the mountain
Thursday, December 19, 2013
I headed up - not north but up.. Actually it was east by a compass but nevertheless it was up.
I took the road right out front of my condo - started off being paved - turned into a gravel road then turned back into a paved road up near the university then back into a gravel road just a little ways past the university but all the time it was going up..
Into the woods - there are many paths and trails - and I am all alone except for the dog Dalhouise that runs ahead of me so happy. I went yesterday but it began to snow so I turned around - I drove 13km up into the highlands... you do not want to be stuck up a mountain when it snows..besides that I had to get back for my Christmas dinner with mom.
So today I made a second attempt to go find a Geo cache that out there. I took the road right to the end - pavement had ended a few km back so I was on a loose gravel / mud road once again.
Well I was prepared - my day pack was loaded - ready for almost any emergency and off I head into the bush.. I still had to walk / hike 1.5 miles to the cache - but what trail to use - I followed this one but it turned away from the cache - did some bushwacking found another trail - followed it but it took me further away - then another trail -- WHERE AND THE HECK AM I ?
Forget about trying to find the Geo cache - I am going just enjoy the hike..
